Where is the Winter Field in Rune Factory 4?

The Winter Field in Rune Factory 4 Special

The route to the Winter Field is concealed behind a cluster of trees along Autumn Road. It’s very easy to miss, so we’ll detail the extra steps to get there in this guide.

On your map of Autumn Road, the Winter Field is on the west edge. Getting there for the first time requires some complicated navigation. Thankfully, once you make it to the field, you will be able to return there with ease using the telecommunicator.
